Andrew Klaber (A21 Young Leader, Tokyo 2008) co-wrote a chapter in Social Entrepreneurship in the Age of Atrocities, a book edited by Dr. Zachary D. Kaufman. The book provides crucial insight into social entrepreneurship from visionaries in the field as well as other experienced practitioners and renowned theorists. While this book focuses on social entrepreneurship as it relates to genocide and other atrocities, the experiences and lessons learned also apply to critical social, economic, legal, and political problems such as healthcare, development, education, and literacy.
In chapter 7, Andrew talks about providing access to education for children and more specifically Orphans Against Aids, a charitable organization that he founded that provides nutrition, health care, and educational access and support to children orphaned by parents with HIV/Aids.
All profits from the book will be donated to charities and non-profit organizations.
